The first severe winter storm of the season is bringing heavy snow, with parts of Kansas, Nebraska and much of northeastern Colorado — including Denver — under a blizzard watch, NBC News reported.
Denver, Vail and Colorado Springs may have as much as 12 inches of new snow by Tuesday morning, according to The Weather Channel.
"Well into the day and evening on Tuesday, we'll have snowfall across eastern Colorado and western Kansas, as well as Nebraska," said Danielle Banks, a meteorologist for The Weather Channel. "Some spots could pick up more than 2 feet."
The storm is expected to move east, and could cause flooding later in the week along the Gulf Coast, as severe thunderstorms move across the South, NBC News reported.
